Nailsea Schools

Each year parents of children requiring to go to a Nailsea school in Avon for the first time, or moving up to a new school or college are having to make tough decisions as regards their child's impending schooling requirements. Which school in Nailsea should I position my son/daughter? It is a difficult decision to make as it can have a profound positive/negative consequence on how your child develops all through childhood and for that reason a mammoth effect on that offspring as he or she passes into adulthood and thereafter.

So how do you choose a unique school from the Nailsea region?

  • Now and then it is straightforward if your offspring already has a sibling or siblings who will be at the school when your other child starts or older siblings previously attended the school.
  • Your nearness to the school.
  • You or your child has a special education needs. You may well want to send off your child to a specialised school to look after your offspring.
  • Faith Schools
  • Your son/daughter went to a linked nursery/primary/secondary school.
  • Entrance exam or selection test (grammar schools and other establishments select a percentage of their pupils on educational ability)
  • Assessment or audition (if the establishment awards a precise number of places on the basis of aptitude for certain subjects)

On the whole most parents decisions are based on the characteristic of the school and the closeness of the school to your locality or work location, if it's easy to drop your offspring off in the mornings for instance.

On the surface of things - the quality of a school is by and large determined by results which are published each and every year in all of the standard newspapers. It is a simple matter of comparing one schools results alongside one another from the Nailsea vicinity. Of course as everybody knows data are generally flawed to some degree or other. Children's results for a particular school may be twisted for lots of different reasons

  • Quality of intake to the school
  • Different Exam boards
  • Expulsions to school
  • Quality of Teaching
  • Type of School
  • Social impact of surrounding area
  • Over/Under subscribed

So there are in fact lots of variables that can increase/decrease a schools performance.

Ofsted is an formal body which writes reports on schools in the Nailsea area as well as the rest of the UK. In a nutshell these reports will disclose how the school is doing, as well as showing that the school is improving or not. Bear in mind your child is liable to attend a Nailsea Primary or Nailsea Secondary school for several years, so it is important to know if a school is improving or not.

Using a schools official reports and results is a decent opening mode of weeding out the wheat from the chaff, after that it's imperative you go and pay a visit to the potential new school on their open day. This is a great system to find out more about the schools policies, its culture and it will also permit you to put questions straight to the head of the school.
